The PediGuard® probes are the only devices that incorporate the DSG™ Technology. These probes are the only stand-alone, handheld devices that can detect possible vertebral cortex perforation during pedicle preparation for screw placement. The PediGuard® probes can alert the surgeons prior to a breach by accurately analyzing the electrical conductivity of the surrounding tissues in real time. This, in turn, can prevent a cortical breach, and also help the surgeons to redirect the probe and advance down the desired path.
The PediGuard® probes are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes to address varying patient anatomies and various surgical procedures and approaches: PediGuard® Straight, PediGuard® Curved, PediGuard® Cannulated and PediGuard® Threaded.
All PediGuard® probes let the surgeons:
- Hear and feel what they cannot see
- Be reassured that the trajectory of drilling is optimal
- Anticipate possible breaches of the pedicle or vertebral body cortex
- Redirect, as necessary, with complete confidence
